Creation Book Finished

My son finished his creation book today.  Once again, he really got into this assignment and enjoyed doing it.  He even wrote a page on why the days were literal 24 hour days without me asking him to.  (It’s not in the pictures though. )   By Kristen H.

Weekly Report (8/22/08)

I had such good intentions of writing a weekly report last year that kind of faded with my busyness.  It is nice to have a record so I hope to do a better job this year. We completed Week 4 of Year 1 of Tapestry of Grace (TOG).  This week we studied Genesis Chapters 1-10 […]

10 Plagues Book

My son completed his 10 plagues book yesterday.  He did a really good job on it.  It took him forever and it about drove me crazy, but I was mostly successful at holding my tongue and letting him work at his own pace.  That is a huge accomplishment for me.  The pictures are hand-drawn, then scanned […]

Glorious Afternoon

My family spent a gorgeous afternoon at Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia.  We have been a few times before and I think it is one of the most beautiful places to hike.  The views are spectacular, because after a fairly steep climb straight up, the rest of the hike is along a relatively treeless ridge […]

Elementary Greek

Last school year we used Elementary Greek Year 1 with my 4th grade son and 2nd grade daughter. I highly recommend this program for teaching Koine Greek to children.  It is broken down into 5 daily lessons per week.  I did the lessons orally with my kids.  Our oral lesson was followed by a workbook exercise that went with the […]
